I need to transport a 2019 eGolf SE (w/ DCFC) from San Jose, CA to Seattle in October and am wondering if it is a crazy idea to drive it there myself.
Using the Plug Share Trip Planner it appears L3 chargers exist along most of the route. (no gaps greater than 100 miles)
I am assuming the following:
- start at 100% charge
- 100 miles maximum between charging stops
- Level3 DC fast charge 8 times
- sleep in car while it charges
- maximum speed 65mph
I have only used L2 chargers for the life of this vehicle (never used L3)
Would it damage the battery pack to DC fast charge 8 times over a 2 day period?
Will the car warn me of overheating?
How will I know if there's a problem?
Has anyone else attempted a trip of this distance?
